Planning to make the smallest size, which should give a couple of inches of ease in the bust assuming I get gauge.

Planning to leave the white off the bottom of the body. Also planning to knit the raglan pieces longer to get more of a t-shirt neckline. I don’t like it when you can see the layer I am wearing underneath a sweater.

Need to measure some sweaters in my wardrobe to decide on lengths for the body and sleeve pieces (info about this in the WiP Wednesday blog post.

Think I will stick with a 3.5mm needle. According to my calculations if I knit size 1 my finished bust will be just over 38ins (zero ease.) Size 2 would be just over 41ins (3ins ease).

Tubular CO.
Decided to add some waist shaping, starting when piece measured 12cm. Think this was a good decision, especially as the back piece is wider than expected, even though my gauge should mean it is smaller than the schematic.

Making good progress on the back piece. All of the black stocking stitch is incredibly dull to knit so I’m looking forward to starting the colourwork.

23.02.18
Getting there with the back. Planning to knit to 38/39cm. Fingers crossed that’ll look good!

Started knitting the zigzags this week and it’s so much more fun!

I’ve cast on and started working the ribbing for the front. Trying to decide the best way to alter the neckline, but it’s trickier than normal as there are no modelled photos of this sweater.

13.03.18
Nearly finished the ribbing on the front. I really need to measure the back piece before I do too much more. I’m a bit concerned it might be too long.

28.03.18
I’ve finished the front ribbing but I’m having a crazy busy time at the moment and not finding any time to knit.

27.04.18
Making extremely slow progress on the front. Working on the decreases. Not feeling very inspired by this project at the moment.
